Personal Description:

I am a final year Mathematics, Chemistry, and Education student in UCD. Teaching and providing guidance in the subjects of maths and chemistry have always been a passion of mine, which is why it is my chosen career path. I am a hard-worker and have thrived well in academics, achieving top of my class last year as well as being the 2017 Westmeath Naughton Scholar based on my Leaving Certificate results. I love working with young people and have plenty of experience doing so. I worked in a girls' sleepaway summer camp in West Virginia in the summer of 2019 as a Performing Arts Counsellor, teaching dance. I am organised and adaptable. I want students to feel more comfortable with these subjects and my interpersonal skills allow me to see what individual students will find motivating. I am friendly and personable. I understand how stressful the Junior and Leaving Certificate can be for students and I genuinely care about students and their attitudes towards maths and chemistry.

Tutoring Experience:

I am going into my final year of Mathematics, Chemistry and Education in UCD. This year I will be teaching 6 classes a week as part of my teaching placement in maths and science, responsible for planning lessons and driving engagement among students with the content. Thus far, I have devised, planned and delivered some maths lessons as part of the teaching part of the course. I had 8 weeks of observation placement in first, second and third year maths classes in my third year of the course. I have often given unofficial grinds and help to friends if they were struggling with areas of maths or science.

Approach to Grinds:

My grinds are very much course-focused, with the exam as the main focus as that is the main worry for students. I am flexible in that I can work with a student in an area they find difficult for many sessions or I can offer guidance as they practice the content alongside their classwork. I see the value in homework, and giving problems to practice between sessions would allow me to monitor and assess their progress and motivation. As a teacher-in-training, I understand that different students find different methods motivating, such as problem- solving approach and teaching through questioning, or by heavy prompts and use of analogies. My grinds are tailored to the individual students' needs and the teaching method which they engage with the most.
